||How important is getting or chasing a pump ??||

Exercise Science
Temporary hypertrophy - Short-term or transient hypertrophy refers to the pumping-up of muscle that occurs during a resistance training session. This is predominantly due to fluid retention in the interstital and intracellular spaces of the muscle and is known as edema.

So, does getting pump is imp for chronic hypertrophy ?? When you lift heavy weight consistently your muscles will become dense and grow. Your body will have to adapt to the heavy works loads as you build up in heavier and heavier weights.This will also be functional muscle growth as well. When you first start lifting weights, you can build muscle following almost any program. The closer you get to your genetic potential, through, the more you have to focus on progressive overload to keep making progress. This refers to increasing tension levels in the muscle fibers over time, and the most effective way to do it is to progressively increase the amount of weight that you’re lifting. That doesn’t mean you should completely avoid pump style training, though.You can still add some pump training (Higher reps)to your workout routine Doing lighter, higher rep training after your heavy sets is a great way to add volume to lagging muscle groups like the shoulders, calves, and biceps. Conclusion-: Focus more on Progressive overloading,you should spend about 80% of your time doing heavy, compound strength training. Then, spend the remaining 20 or so percent of your time on pump training to target your lagging muscle groups. Thanks
